On Wednesday, January 5th, we were the lucky recipients of a Whole Foods Market Harbor East 5% Day. All day, 5% of all sales were donated to Moveable Feast!
Moveable Feast was there all day - beginning early in the morning and not leaving until late in the evening - with a table of information and some delicious cookies provided by Whole Foods. Staff and volunteers welcomed shoppers as they entered the store, passed out fliers, and enthusiastically explained how their purchases would benefit Moveable Feast.
Shoppers were also able to make a food donation at our table, following guidelines provided by our dietitians.
Staff and volunteers got along famously, and everyone had a fun day.
Best of all, the day collected a grand total of $3,356 for Moveable Feast!
(We even beat the previous 5% Day record.)
That's enough to feed almost forty clients for an entire month - achieved in a single day, thanks to Whole Foods!
Whole Foods Market Harbor East is a Ride for the Feast 2011 sponsor, located at 1001 Fleet Street.
